There is just something so magical about the Redwood Forest. I feel its pull always. It speaks to me in whispers of centuries past. Within it time always seems to slow and stand still and I just breathe it all in.

This wedding there was so unique, beautiful, natural and earthy. I loved how intimate it was with close family and friends surrounding the bride and groom in an intimate grove of Redwood trees. Surrounded by sunshine, ferns and beautiful fallen logs full of mossy growth they said I do.
Brides beautiful hair and makeup was by the talented Shawnie Curtis Makeup Artist out of Medford, Oregon. Florals were by my one of my favorites Penny and Lulu Studio Florist and the venue for the reception The Applegate Lodge.

Montana has my heart...
This Fall I flew back to shoot this incredible wedding in Columbia Falls with my good friend and photographer Jaci Brillon. Not only were the mountains in this region of our country breathtaking, so was this bride. Her horse, her beautiful mountaintop home and property on which she had her wedding and children.

I am so blessed to have been able to capture and witness this while on my visit to the Flathead area of Montana. Destination weddings and travel to capture special days for couples this past year have been a person with wanderlusts dream come true. I am always available to travel back to this great state for wedding bookings as well as many others. For more information please visit my website or contact me by email.
Masquerade balls were a feature of the 15th century and spread through most of Europe by the 17th and 18th centuries. Balls, gardens, plays, operas with an air of secrecy, were considered a little bit if not a lot quite scandalous. Lending an air of mystery in much different times, they still to this day evoke a feeling of clandestine love and emotions.
This styled session at Sweet Cheeks Vineyard nestled in the hills surrounding Eugene, Oregon was just the magical place for a bit of masquerade. Our model Heidi Marie Carpenter evoked just the right amount of mystery in her eyes. The purple and gold accented meringues were absolutely delicious. The handmade ring was to die for. The bouquet brought the smell of fresh herbs mingling with the passing rain storm that day. The props were bold and colorful. The gown had a frothy cascading train. Everything was perfection.
